Not being an expert about Marigot, this restaurant seemed to be in an unexpected and kind of sketchy area, and during our week on St. Maarten, we had our favorite meal here. I had a flank steak with grilled onions and ratatouille; my wife had grouper with a lemon sauce. Dessert was a nice creme brulee. This is a small... More

It was an amazing lunch for less money. I really liked the meal with meat with honey sauce. I am dreaming of coming back just to eat it! And the profiteroles are also very good. Nice personal restaurant with a charming waiter although we were the only persons eating in there. (off season) Keep on making such good meals, we'll... More

This restaurant is 10-15 minute walk away from Marigot Center. Very quaint atmosphere. Authentic French Cuisine. There is something for everyone. The portions are huge. Two courses is going to be plenty enough. You must save room for dessert, it was amazing! The profiteroles are a must.

This restaurant has recently changed hands, but it is still a great place to eat. The new owners have fixed the place up, and it is one of the few airconditioned resaurants in Saint Martin. We had dinner there, earlier this month. My wife had the creole plate, and I stuck with traditional French food. I no longer saw the... More

We were the first to arrive at 7 p.m. but the place filled up within minutes. Best to make a reservation as we saw some folks turned away. It's a small place with basic but nice Parisian decor. Great French menu. Lots of French specialities. Friendly service but with only one waiter he was rushed off his feet once the... More

We spent our week on the island trying most highly recommended restaurants. We see why this is one of them. This is a small and intimate restaurant that evokes the best of left Bank bistros or small village restaurants in the south of France. Very engaging but not intrusive service. Food was inventive but traditional French twist on Caribbean foods.... More

Four of us dined. One had mussels that were a bit overcooked, but the other three raved about their food. We were impressed by the wine selection, as well as the little bit of France we found in the small cafe. Prices were very good and we plan to be back. We got the impression that the staff is passionate... More

It was such a marvelous experience! It is a very cozy cottage, away from the rest of the busy tourist area. Our server was very patient with us as we make decisions on appetizer and the entree. We ordered the pan-seared foie gras and escargot as appetizer, and chicken leg stew and duck confit as entree. Everything was perfect. Foie... More
